I am glad you have woken up alive today. To say thanks, pop down your nearest pub at lunchtime and buy yourself a pint of Doom Bar. You deserve it, and it could keep your pub going ’till Boxing Day.
In what has become a fixture in the seasonal calendar (I did it last year), I bring you this special selection of photographic highlights, selected entirely at random from the last post of each month.
If you have someone creative in your family they can print out the pictures and make you a nice calendar or something.
An afternoon with Pub Curmudgeon, Pubmeister and Pub Cat that wasn’t beaten all year.
FEBRUARY – RAF Farnborough during “Beast from the East”
Walking three miles in a blizzard for a half in a Farnborough Ember Inn – hoorah !
MARCH – Greene King IPA drunk through a straw in a Hull estate pub
In memory of Alan Winfield, who would have loved the Lord Nelson.
APRIL – Sooty charity box and Butcombe lacings on the edge of Swindon
“There you go my lovely” said the Landlady at the Heart in Hand at Blunsdon.
MAY – BRAPA arrives in Cambridgeshire. With predictable results.
Any excuse to resurrect Angry Babe.
JUNE – Missing Marti Pellow in Worthing
My reflection ruining your June. Forever. Yet another trip to Worthing; a duff micro but a great blog title.
Random highlights from July to December later. Perhaps.
Anyway, off to Tunbridge Wells to see the in-laws and not do any pubs, not even the Foresters in Tonbridge which is open 12-3. Life is so unfair.
